Hi all,

The latest Rapido News - #99! - is online.

Here's the link:

The TurboTrain order deadline is next Monday, and we're starting production by next Friday so it's time to get off the fence.... ;-)

Thanks for reading,

Jason

@rapidotrains,

I cannot believe that you are doing the B36-7 in HO and that you're also making it available in the Seaboard System paint scheme.  If these models are of the same quality as that of your F40PH, of which I own one Amtrak unit (and it is one of my favorite HO locomotive models), I cannot wait and will be in for a few B36s.

Thank you!

Our pleasure. The B36 will be better than the F40. Gareth is the project manager and he is detail obsessed. It's also four years newer, and our design and production abilities have improved.

C30-7/C30-7A/C36-7 would be great in N scale. Kato only makes one phase and it is very old tooling.

Also... SD40s. We need better models of these.

Including high nose SD40's!

The B36's look remarkable especially the cabkes running to the trucks....
